There are those moments in life where words are hard to come by.
Darius Rucker knows.
So he sings.
And never has he sung more beautifully or with more emotion than he does on the song “So I Sang,” an intriguing cut off his current album “Southern Style.” The song is essentially the story of Rucker’s life, spanning the years from when he was a kid who wasn’t so great at sports to a man bearing the weight of a parent’s death.
“[“So I Sang”] is the most honest song I’ve ever been a part of,” Rucker says. “When you hear that song, it’s telling you what my life was really like growing up. When my mom died, I couldn’t speak. I just remember singing in church with the choir and then going home and putting on Al Green’s ‘Tired of Being Alone’, which was her favorite song. That song is just me singing about me.”
Rucker is currently back out on the road on his Southern Style Tour, which begins May 14 in Holmdel, N.J., with Brett Eldredge, the Brothers Osborne and A Thousand Horses.
